purpose the propose of this experiment was too see if the chemical reaction of a enzyme can be made faster.

Hypothesis
I think that a warm environment would be best to make an enzyme’s reaction faster. because a protein can move faster in heat.

Materials
-pan
-50ml graduated cylinder
-hydrogen peroxide
-air stopper
-water

Why is it a good idea to pull data from the entire class? It is a good idea because it allows you to see other results and to prove your results are correct.

2. Look at the graph for part A , how does the enzyme activity vary with concentration? The more concentrated the greater the reaction.

3. Look at your graph for Part B, how does temperature affect enzyme activity? The colder the temperature the greater the reaction.

4. Look at your graph for Part C, how does pH affect the enzyme activity? The hirer the pH the greater the reaction.

5. Discuss in detail the general conditions necessary for affective enzyme action. Are the conditions the same for each enzyme? Why or why not? The best conditions are cold temperature, high concentration and a high pH.The conditions would be different for different enzymes because all proteins are different.

6. How would you design an experiment to show how much faster H2O2 decomposes in the presence of an enzyme then it does without the enzyme? Use the same system and just add it with water and compare both of them.

7. Explain why the enzyme is still active even though the liver cells from which you obtained the enzyme were no longer living? Because it is still a
